Daily Buzz Style 9x9: Day To Night Make Up Tutorial

24 January 2012

When I was chosen to put together a Day to Night Make Up Tutorial for Daily Buzz's Style 9x9, I immediately knew what I wanted to do, a simple cat lined eye and a nude lip for day and for night, my signature bold lips, fuchsia in particular. 

And since most of you know, like my hair, I don't spend a lot of time on my make-up, since well, I already spend far too much time standing in my closet looking for clothes to wear. Not to mention, the whole chasing after two under 3 all day, leaves little time for primping. I literally spend 5 minutes on make up, and I'm totally fine with it.
For Day
I substitute moisturizer for primer and have found it has exactly the same effects as actually priming your face, especially when make up is applied immediately after. Then I lightly go over my face with a cream make up, conceal as needed and then add a some bronzer. Too Faced - Pink Leopard is my Favorite.
Next, I apply a little white shadow to my eyes (temples and upper cheekbone) to 'hightlight' my features with a large eye shadow brush.
Then, I carefully line my lids with liquid liner. Revlon's ColorStay Liquid Liner in Black Brown is my long time favorite.
Mascara is next, top lashes only. (Note - Putting mascara on your lower lashes has been known accentuate dark circles) Then I 'clean' up whatever smudging might've happened. 
After the eyes are all set, I set everything with a little 'mineral' powder.
After I add a touch of color with blush, just to give a little more glow, and blend.
 And of course, what's a make up 'routine' without lips? I went with a nude shimmer gloss (seen here).

And Voila! Day To Night in Under 5 Minutes.

So pretty! My mascara alone usually takes 5 minutes and then about 5 minutes for everything else. Haha. I am a minimalist with my make up too! I have seen a lot of fuchsia lips lately! I am afraid to try it...too pink for me!
